Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Oxygen
  • Paleontology

Gerhard Bohrmann mainly focuses on Mineralogy, Clathrate hydrate, Carbonate, Authigenic and Geochemistry. His Mineralogy research includes themes of Sedimentary rock, Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Water column and Bubble. The Clathrate hydrate study which covers Methane that intersects with Gas hydrate stability zone.

His Carbonate research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Seawater, Chemosynthesis, Pore water pressure and Isotopes of oxygen. His study in Geochemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sediment and Cold seep. The Hydrate Ridge study combines topics in areas such as Seabed and Petrology.

His most cited work include:

  • Contribution of Southern Ocean surface-water stratification to low atmospheric CO2 concentrations during the last glacial period (486 citations)
  • Gas hydrate destabilization: enhanced dewatering, benthic material turnover and large methane plumes at the Cascadia convergent margin (365 citations)
  • Authigenic carbonates from the Cascadia subduction zone and their relation to gas hydrate stability (343 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Methane, Oceanography and Clathrate hydrate. His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like Petroleum seep and Sediment. His work investigates the relationship between Mineralogy and topics such as Carbonate that intersect with problems in Anaerobic oxidation of methane.

His Methane study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Environmental chemistry, Pore water pressure and Water column. His Oceanography research incorporates themes from Cold seep and Continental margin. His Clathrate hydrate research includes elements of Seafloor spreading, Petrology and Geomorphology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (28.69%)
  • Mineralogy (27.15%)
  • Methane (20.96%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (28.69%)
  • Sediment core (14.43%)
  • Methane (20.96%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Sediment core, Methane, Documentation and Oceanography. His Geochemistry study incorporates themes from Petroleum seep, Carbonate, Clathrate hydrate and Continental margin. His Clathrate hydrate research focuses on Seafloor spreading and how it connects with Continental shelf and Deep sea.

His research investigates the connection between Sediment core and topics such as Mineralogy that intersect with issues in Porosity. His research on Methane also deals with topics like

  • Environmental chemistry which connect with Isotopic composition, Carbon and Sulfate,
  • Water column and related Anaerobic oxidation of methane. His research in Oceanography intersects with topics in Natural, Cold seep and Meteor.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Widespread methane seepage along the continental margin off Svalbard - from Bjørnøya to Kongsfjorden (61 citations)
  • Gas hydrate dissociation off Svalbard induced by isostatic rebound rather than global warming (58 citations)
  • Short-chain alkanes fuel mussel and sponge Cycloclasticus symbionts from deep-sea gas and oil seeps (39 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Oceanography
  • Oxygen
  • Paleontology

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Methane, Clathrate hydrate, Seafloor spreading and Oceanography. His studies examine the connections between Geochemistry and genetics, as well as such issues in Carbonate, with regards to Anaerobic oxidation of methane. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental chemistry, Pore water pressure, Water column and Arctic.

His Clathrate hydrate research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Continental margin, Pockmark and Mbsf. His study on Cruise and Holocene is often connected to Photic zone as part of broader study in Oceanography. His Mud volcano research incorporates elements of Chemosynthesis, Volcanism, Authigenic and Breccia.
